About a week ago I was browsing on Deviantart when I saw this fanart by Shroomy23. I asked for the sketch a bit later because I loved the lines and she actually posted it here (the image I used to make the wall). I decided to push my luck and asked for coloring and walling permission of the sketch, I got a positive response then the party began.
I was really, really happy because I wanted to make an Alucard wall for a long time, but none of the official scans left any room for background.
Here are more of her designs: Bluecard, Rainbowcard & my permission screencap.

The hardest parts of this wall surprised me to say the least. This is the image I used for the coffin text and to actually write it was pretty much a blonde moment. First of all I had no idea how to make Greek letters, so I searched for fonts, but couldn't find any Greek ones, they all resembled Greek, but weren't the alphabet. So I went as far as beginning to vector the letters on the coffin, but gave up after 2 letters and searched on Google something among the lines "Greek letters in Photoshop". On a forum someone wrote about the font Symbol. I face plam'd so hard... Of course, Symbol. So after half an hour of struggle I was able to write the damn piece of text.
The rest wasn't hard to be honest, I'm used to vector insane stuff, even the Westminster Palace and Big Ben weren't as complicated to make as I initially suspected.

excuse the normal title, I have no other ideas

    very nice piece, I liked how it turned out, I'm a big time alucard fan so whom better of a vampire to do than this one. the whole piece was well worth the elite status. I admire your work, it's always something different, diversity is often a good thing :)

    How you vectored Alucard is amazing (I really like the subtle lighting as well), but it's the city in the background and the completeness of this wallpaper truly blows me away. Excellent attention to details!

    I LOVE the background! The glass on the windows is fantastic and the buildings are awesome! Well done!

    Oh my God, what a complicated way of coloring (from the looks of it).
    What a great wallpaper of Alucard-sama~
    Are those broken window panes behind him? If yes, then I need to point out that they looks unrealistic (I even gone through some picture of broken window panes for revision), well, not all of them, only some.
    But that just a small details so it won't stop me from liking this wallpaper. :D
